Our new office is basically on top so I wanted to take my team for beers and burgers as a Friday lunchtime treat. Greenwood bills itself as a sports bar, which is largely unintrusive, and really just a large (slightly fancy) pub.
However, despite it be a very quiet Friday in January I had to track down one of the many milling staff even to get drinks offered. The menu is basic, bar bites and junk food, largely burger and pizza – but nicer than average. Sadly, the pizza oven was on strike, so half the menu was off for starters. When we finally managed to order, it was a bit slow and then just disappointing. The chicken burger is the greasiest thing I think that I have ever eaten. I know it’s buttermilk FRIED chicken, but the oil was a slick on my plate. Every burger comes with a choice of one of three different types of fries, which actually are nice. However, none of the food was seasoned and there is no chip vinegar! Balsamic yes, malt? No. For chips. With no salt.
For £14 a plate I really feel that most people, once they have tried this will head across the plaza to Shake Shack.
It’s fine for a drink, but don’t eat there.
